My name is Silverstream. I don't know where I am. No, that's not right. I do. But this isn't my world anymore. It changed.
The sun hasn't come up for three days now. It's dark. And I am scared. The stars are gone, too. And the moon. There is no light anymore in Ponyville. And everypony is gone. My friends too. I am alone. Alone in the darkness.
I must go looking for them. I need to see if anyone is left. I am recording these messages with my mobile phone. If I don't survive, then someone else needs to know what happened to me... maybe it will help them. And it's easier if I talk to someone, even if that someone is me.
I gotta go. Wish me luck.

Wow this is really good :pinkiesmile: Keep going!!

What a thoroughly weird story, and I mean this in the best possible way.

Has a nightmare feel to it, half remembered shards of events, monsters that are barely there yet get worse everytime you look. Definitly an experience. I wonder if this will go beyond just the nightmare of a world both too empty and too full.

A story based on - I assume - The Sun Vanished? Color me intrigued

Finally a detailed comment. I was getting worried. This story is very different and I am surprised that the views and upvotes are as high as they are.
I knew a story like this can be immersive, exciting and scary if done right, but I was unsure if my audience here will care about a story that merely consists of a sentence or two in each "chapter". The numbers and especially your comment show that the concept of the story is garnering interest and attention and for that, I'm very glad.

I wonder if this will go beyond just the nightmare of a world both too empty and too full.

It already is, actually. The events here are all real, Silverstream is not dreaming, these are events that actually happen to her. A horror story in which the protagonist only has a nightmare and wakes up from that eventually, in a normal world and in their normal home, would be boring and lame. Especially if the story ends that way. So what Silverstream goes through here is the real deal.

Close. And it's funny you mention that, because I heard about "The Sun Vanished" only yesterday when I googled for my source of inspiration.
This story is inspired by "Where is the Sky". You can find it on TikTok. This is the reason why the "chapters" here are often a little bit longer and why they are more descriptive, to make up for the lack of video and sound here.
I was worried how much attention this unusual idea will get, so I'm glad you enjoy it!

It definitly is an interesting story. Unique through the shortness. But I remember a saying, perfection is not when there is nothing more to add, but rather if there is nothing left to take away.

A story stripped down to the barest components that still work and I feel like partially work because they are just the barest impressions of what is happening, yet tell us more then enough. But also tantalizingly little.

It's a unique style that lends itself well to this nearly dreamlike horror that I at least percieve.


And forgive me my probably overly poetic phrasing, I didn't take the story as a dream, more a waking nightmare, or perhaps nightmares made part of the waking world. Perhaps I am just a bit to fixated on the nightmare imagary I think to see.

What I meant was a question whether the story would stay one of pure survival in this world, or if the discovery of what had happend or perhaps recovery from what has happened. Though then again, not knowing can be quite fun in itself.

Either way, rambling mode off, thank you for tgis quite unique and thoroughly intriguing horror story, I'll definitly keep reading.
